March is National Arts Education Month. To celebrate, each year the Norfolk Arts Center welcomes Norfolk Public, parochial and home school students to display their work for the enjoyment of the entire community. Families and friends come back year after year to proudly view their budding artist’s accomplishments. New this year is the addition of Norfolk area home school students to the show! The NAC strives to represent all practicing young artists in the area. For more information on this exhibition and ways to participate, please contact NAC. In addition, continuing to build from last year, faculty artwork will also be on display. Participating art teachers are encouraged to bring their own work, in addition to their students’ artwork, and demonstrate their accomplishments to the next generation of artists.
FEATURED SCHOOLS: Christ Lutheran School • Sacred Heart Elementary Norfolk Catholic High School St. Paul’s Lutheran School • Norfolk Public Schools Norfolk Area Home Schools • Lutheran High Northeast

As an artist Courtney Kenny Porto is inspired by everyday life, by the frustrations and joys as well as its ironic and incongruous nature. Her work depicts various situations, struggles and revelations that she has experienced. She believes that in order to be truly genuine, artists must portray ideas and concepts that are close to their own heart. The truly powerful artists do this in such a way that others are also able to deeply relate.
